Congratulations!

The display here was faint & higher in the sky, filling the Ursa Major region, in fact I was suspecting it was very thin cirrus lit by the Moon & artificially (  Angry ) so I didn't take a lot of notice, made the best of the excellent transparency & seeing. You lot further South were possibly seeing this same formation brighter because of the more favourable angle. Between 2 am & 3 am (BST) there was a enhancement of the twilight arc in the NE which I believe was the "lowest grade" of NLC (unstructured glow), certainly the colour was unusual for ordinary twilight.
